WOYWW #209

Happy What's on your Workdesk Wednesday to you all, especially Julia who I hope has recovered from all last week's birthday celebrations. I was determined to visit every desk and actually did manage a n awful lot more than usual, but failed once more in what has now become a marathon event. Thank you for all the comments and concerns about the washing machine fiasco. It took 2 days to sort but I have clean clothes again (well I did for the days I was without a machine having to wash by hand, but try washing bedding by hand - it's a nightmare) and my workroom space looks like this now:
Ok yo can see mucky cloths. They are my craft sheet wipes. That little cubby hole now houses 2 boxes full of envelopes which were in a kitchen cupboard, some of my Ranger stash and a couple of paper trimmers. However, the best bit is I can sit at my bar stool and not bang my knees on the washer. Oh for small mercies.
The top is still a bit bare meaning - not much crafting going on again:

A couple of newly bought canvases, 2 wine gums left from a bag of them, a note book I have been using for some challenge blog work, an information sheet I printed about our local bee keepers association (my neighbour but one has found a bee hive in a bird box) and my phone showing a photo of My Boat - I wish - it's the new Sunseeker 155 due to be launched officially in 2014. However, we saw the hull being prepared in one of the hangars last year and have now found out that the first boat has been commissioned by Eddie Jordan of F1 fame and it's due on the water this September. Guess where I'm going in September then? Yep, Poole in Dorset. One of these days I'll get to have a look round a 155 and when I win the Euro lottery, I'll buy one. Cheap as chips at only £18m!!!!!!!
Right then, another day begs attention. Have a good week everyone.

Hello there, our craft space was in the kitchen until last week. We found we were slowly taking over all the kitchen cupboards and squeezing the actual kitchen stuff into tiny spaces. We just moved back into the bedroom this week.

Glad the washing machine problem is now a thing of the past! Hate washing by hand, especially bedding!! Nice idea about the boat. We're still waiting for our lottery win as well. Happy (late) WOYWW Pam#9

If you win the lottery and getta sunseeker, can we have a WOYWW visit?!! Doyou know of all the outcomes from your washing machine, I'm most pleased that you have knee space now...it's a biggie in my world! In the joinery there are piles of stock under every surface and there isn't even toe space and it makes my hips ache standing at a slightly funny angle!!
